February is Heart Health Month. With that in mind, I set out to share a lightened up version of a favorite pasta dish. One pot sausage pasta is made with Mazola Corn Oil instead of butter, whole wheat pasta instead of white pasta, and Italian sausage made of turkey instead of pork. Even with these lightened up swaps, it is still a comforting and flavorful meal that takes under 30 minutes to prepare.
Mazola Corn Oil is an all-purpose, cholesterol free cooking oil that is a smart heart-healthy* choice for your family. *See Mazola.com for more information on the relationship between corn oil and heart health. It has a variety of uses include baking, grilling, sautéing, stir frying, or mixing up a marinade or dressing.
CAN I FREEZE ONE POT PASTA?
